The Gateways project find its roots very early in my Art researches, but an old tale tells the story of a little girl fascinated by her teacher’s stockings. The little girl couldn’t stop touching her teacher’s legs, until she got punished.
The exhibition «The Gateways» is an attempt to record and express how, in a constantly changing environment, all living beings adapt, evolve and SURvive, with utter perseverance.
The artworks, including paintings, sculptures and in-situ-installations, were exhibited in Hong Kong for the first time, from October, 3rd to November,15th. The opening featured a live performance and a presentation by the artist.
